What would cause a poulan chain saw to quit running after about ten minutes of cutting

The only temperature sensitive part I can think of is the condenser. In most saws it is under the flywheel with the points. Some newer saws have an electronic ignition module. If that is the case the module must be replaced.

My saw just cuts off after running it a couple minutes then it wont start back until it sits a little while

My first thought is the vent for the fuel tank is partially obstructed causing a slight vacuum to build in the tank when running, as it sets after it quits running the vent allows air into the tank slowly until the pressure equalizes.

Flooding petrol

Saw is getting flooded? Does the saw run? After a few pulls with the choke on the saw should fire, Open the choke and in a couple of pulls the saw should start. If you have flooded thee saw you can hold it on the ground with your knee, hold full throttle and in up to ten pulls it should go with a slow start and some smoke, give it rev and away you go. Hope this helps

Will not stay running

If it will run for ten minutes before it stops i would say it is either the fuel tank breather ( to test this slacken off the fuel filler cao when it starts to die, if it picks up again replace the breather ) or it is a problem with the ignition unit breaking down, replace the ignition unit.

Chainsaw will not start. might be flooded. only fairly new.

If the saw is flooded, remove the spark plug, switch the ignition off, push the choke in, now crank the engine approx ten times, now leave the saw for an hour, re fit the plug and try to re start the saw not useing the choke. Dont forget to switch the ignition back on.

Dear sirs,we have a chainsaw that will only run for about 10 mins then dies what could be the problem

If it runs for ten minutes it tends to rule out blocked filters or carb, i would tend to say it could be a fuel tank breather issue, when it stets ti die try slackening the fuel cap, if it picks up again it is a breather issue, the other possibility is the ignition breaking down, this would require replacement to prove this.

How to start a Husqvarna 445?

Set choke to full on. To do this depress throttle all the way down and set choke lever to on. Pull starter rapidly until saw fires . Once it has fired set to start and pull starter cord until it starts. If it doesn't start in ten - twelve pulls,reset choke for two or three pulls,then switch back to start. Pull starter cord until it starts. When it starts it wii be at full R.P.Ms. Let run for twenty to thirty seconds. then move switch to run. Hope his helps, Thanks

1 Answer

Respected Sir, I purchase a Husqvarna's chainsaw last week Model 236- 14". but I cant start it. I read manual carefully, every thing is OK. but Chainsaw can't start yet. So I request you,...


2-cycle oil mixed with FRESH gasoline
Spark plug wire pushed onto spark plug
Chain tight but you can still move it forward with your hand
Switch turned on
Pull the cord a few times, and then let it sit for a few minutes in case it's 'flooded' with fuel

If a new chain saw won't start, it probably has defective spark coil
Chain saws usually don't cause problems fresh out of the box, they stop working if people leave gasoline in the tank for a couple months each time.

Here's what I would do
Empty the tank of gas. Put fresh gas-n-oil into tank (not gas from an old can that was sitting there for a while)
Try starting again.
If no luck, then take it back and exchange for another.

Good luck sir.

My saw starts fine, runs great for about 5-10 minutes, then dies. If I let it sit for another 5-10 minutes it fires first pull and runs strong- for about 5-10 min then dies. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello. Check the filter in the bottom of the fuel tank, I am betting that it is partially gummed up and restricting the flow of fuel. Regards, Joe
